Chinese Proverbs – Words to Live By from Artistic Outpost

This is yet another stamp that had never seen ink until last week.  This plate is from Artistic Outpost’s Chinese Proverbs.


I used Ranger’s Sepia Archival Jumbo ink pad to stamp the image.  For larger stamps such as this I like to place the stamp upside down and apply ink, and then place the cardstock on top and rub with my hand…you can also use a brayer.  I made the "pagoda" side more "juicy" so that when I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder it yielded an "almost" waxy look and texture.  The edges of the cardstock and vellum were aged with the Sepia ink and a sponge dauber.


Stamps:  Chinese Proverbs (Artistic Outpost)

Paper:  The Far East Stack (DCWV), gold vellum

Ink:  Ranger Sepia Archival Jumbo Pad

Accessories and Misc.:  clear embossing powder, heat gun, scrap of dark red cardstock, gold cord, leaf-patterned organdy ribbon (May Arts?), sponge dauber for aging edges of cardstock and vellum


Thanks for looking!
